This is a snapshot from the Antique Shop in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.
November 1958 and this couple is going someplace..perhaps they have been to a wedding. At first I thought a Prom..but usually Proms are held in the spring of the year.
I love looking around in the photo..noticing his cufflinks and that white shirt with the cuffs. They are sitting on a piano or organ bench. That wallpaper is a treat for your eyes and I recall those bronze horses too. There is a clock between them that shows five minutes to nine..and I think he is holding a dark bottle in his left hand.
I am not sure what that poufy hem is called in the gals dress. If I recall correctly..the dress is cut longer and the hem has a string that is pulled and then it is stitched in place to the can can slip so it is equally poufy all the way around..I bet it was itchy. I seem to recall a paper slip too..and stuffing the poufs with tissue paper. Perhaps a reader has actually worn a dress like the one pictured.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
